companies cannot church where brown. they cannot impose arbitrary lifetime limits. they have to let you keep your kid on their insurance -- your insurance plan until you're 26 years old. and it also says that you're going to have to get rebates if insurance companies are spending more on administrative costs and profits than they are on actual care. no. 2, if you don't have health insurance, were essentially setting up a group plan that allows you to benefit from group rates that are typically 18% lower than if you are out there trying to get insurance on the individual market. the last point i made before -- your two minutes is up critics i think i have five seconds before you interrupted me. the irony is, that we have seen this model work really well in massachusetts because governor romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and as a consequence people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed jobs. and as a consequence, we have a system in which we have the opportunity to start bringing down costs, as opposed to just l
